Strawberry Hill is a beautiful mountain escape that combines the rustic, laidback lifestyle of its surroundings with fabulous views across the mountain slopes and over Kingston. A complete contrast to Jamaica’s beach resorts, it’s an ideal retreat for those looking for a stylish way to get back to nature.
Having started life as an 18th century plantation-style house that became the mountain hideaway of record mogul Chris Blackwell - the man who discovered reggae legend Bob Marley - today its 12 rooms and suites, furnished with hand carved antiques and traditional Jamaican four poster beds provide a romantic retreat.
The one bedroom Birdshill cottage, which boasts its own idyllic dining terrace and outdoor Jacuzzi, is perfect for honeymooners. Visit the hotel’s full service Aveda Concept Spa or while away a few hours while lazily drifting in a hammock. Strawberry Hill is an adults-only resort, providing an ideal Caribbean escape for couples to relax in. Dining options combine Jamaican dishes and a full vegetarian menu. On a Sunday enjoy the feast that is the weekend brunch with the resort’s own strawberry bliss bubbly wine.
